Coming soon: New Book Club Kits

The North Dakota State Library has a great and always expanding collection of book club kits. These kits, which consist of 1o copies of the book along with discussion questions, can be borrowed by any library or individual in North Dakota. These kits make it super easy (and nearly free!) to facilitate a book club meeting. There’s no need for group members to purchase the book – the only expense is the postage to return the kit to us at NDSL. We currently have 19 kits available to request through our online catalog, and we will soon have 8 new kits to add to the collection:

Book club favorites:

  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
  • Little Bee by Chris Cleve
  • Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

Science & Technology:

  • Arctic Drift by Clive Cussler
  • When the Killing’s Done by T.C. Boyle
  • Thunderstruck by Erik Larson


  • Monuments Men by Robert Edsel
  • True Grit by Charles Portis

Summer will soon be here (though our weather here in the upper midwest feels more like March than May), and many book discussion groups will be taking a hiatus until fall. But when your group starts thinking about getting back together in September, keep the ND State Library’s book club kits on your radar – and stay tuned for more kits being added throughout the year!
